A 24-hour, stop-go system has been put in place on a busy Kilkenny road following the collapse of a railway bridge wall.
The road affected is the Kilkenny City to Thomastown road at Killarney Bridge - according to Kilkenny County Council a wall approaching the bridge has collapsed.
No end date for the lane closure has been announced, as remedial works will have to take place first.
Caution is urged on the stretch of road, which has been the site of several road accidents. Kilkenny County Council and Irish Rail installed traffic safety measures in the area, earlier this year.
